Add The vROps License, Configuring LDAP, and The SMTP For vRealize Operations Manager (vROps)

If you’ve been following my previous posts, I discussed what vRealize Operations Manager is, how to get the appliance deployed, how to get the master replica, data nodes and remote collectors attached to the cluster, and finally how to get data collection started.

Now it’s time to license vRealize Operations Manager.  This can be achieved by logging into the appliance via: < https ://vrops-appliance/ui/login.action >.  Next go into the Administration section, and there you’ll see Licensing.  Click the green plus sign to add the vROps license.

About seven down from Licensing on the left hand column, you will see Authentication Sources.  This is where you configure LDAP.

Again click the green plus sign to configure the LDAP source.

Once the credentials have been added, test the connection and then if everything checks out click OK.

Lastly lets get the SMTP service configured,  about three down from Authentication sources you’ll find outbound settings.  Click the green plus to add a new smtp.

Once you have the SMTP information added, test the connection, and if everything checks out click save.

So now you should have a functioning licensed vrops instance.  In future posts I will cover creating object groups, policies, and configuring some alert emails.
